SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Barrett-Jackson, The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions, and Ford Motor Company will auction two of the world’s most coveted VIN 001 vehicles for charity, the legendary 2021 Ford Bronco 2-door VIN 001 (preview) and 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 VIN 001 (preview) during the Scottsdale Auction at WestWorld of Scottsdale, March 20-27, 2021. One-hundred percent of the hammer price from the Ford Bronco VIN 001 will benefit National Forest Foundation and Outward Bound, which are part of Ford’s new Bronco Wild Fund mission to connect people to the outdoors. The total sale price of the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 VIN 001 will benefit JDRF’s efforts against type 1 diabetes. To date, Barrett-Jackson has helped raise more than $127 million for more than 130 local and national charitable organizations.

“The 2021 Ford Bronco 2-door VIN 001 and 2021 Mustang Mach 1 VIN 001 are born from two of the world’s most fabled vehicles,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “The return of these two models is among the most celebrated of our time. I’m really excited about both of these reborn icons selling on our auction block and, since I own a vintage Bronco myself, am particularly interested to see what VIN 001 of the new model will bring. These two vehicles will help write collector car history as part of our Scottsdale docket, which features the most VIN 001 and first-production vehicles ever offered at a single auction.”

The legendary Bronco has returned after 25 years. The first of only 7,000 First Editions built for the 2021 model year, the fully loaded 2021 Bronco 2-door VIN 001 (preview) features the mechanical components of the Badland Series, the Sasquatch Package and is finished in Lighting Blue. It is powered by a V6 EcoBoost that delivers approximately 310 horsepower and 400 ft/lbs of torque and is equipped with the HOSS System, which includes front and rear locking axles, as well as independent front suspension. This First Edition Bronco comes with a modular painted black hardtop, removable doors and Limited Edition badges, graphics and Safari bar. One-hundred percent of the hammer price from the sale of the Bronco will benefit National Forest Foundation and Outward Bound, which are part of Ford’s new Bronco Wild Fund mission.

“Ford perfectly incorporated the spirit of the original Bronco and Mustang Mach 1 into their latest models,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “While each is purpose-built for the track or off-road, both remain true to their heritage. We couldn’t be prouder to work with Ford on the sale of these two legendary vehicles. Not only will they make history as VIN 001s, but their sales will drive change through the charities they benefit for years to come.”

After a 17-year hiatus, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 VIN 001 (preview) has returned as the modern pinnacle of style, handling and V8 pony car performance. This limited-edition Mach 1 features a 480-horsepower engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and the track-ready Handling Package. Clad in Fighter Jet Gray, which is exclusive to the Mustang Mach 1, the exterior features a new front fascia, exclusive wheels, orange accents and special edition badges that celebrate its 50-plus year heritage. One-hundred percent of the hammer price will benefit JDRF.

Always great to see these charitable auctions. I wouldn't be surprised if the Bronco went for more than the Mach 1.

That's great and all, but they would make more raffling it off, and it wouldn't automatically go into the hands of another rich collector.
On the other hand, if I were to win such a raffle, I would drive it around the block, then put it up for auction. That way a rich collector could buy it and stash it away, and I'd have enough to buy a Mach 1 and a Bronco. :rockon:

Another great auction, will have to watch, maybe it will go for more that the GT500. Hopefully it is more accurately built.

It’s a waste of a vehicle when people do that ...

I say $500K tops, but that's still ridiculous IMO. I wouldn't pay a penny over MSRP for one :).

Not really. A rich guy pays way too much for it so he can write it off as charity. He stashes it somewhere and since it's not a classic car or rare in any other manner, it gets cycled in to regular people's hands later on down the road as a low mileage example. It's never going to be as big of a deal like it was when it was first sold off.

Just think, if someone on autotrader was selling the FIRST EVER new-edge Mach 1 for a significant amount more than a similar mileage new-edge Mach 1, would you pay for it? I surely wouldn't. There's no historical value there.

These always go in the millions.
The first 2015 GT sold for "only" $300k.
Again for charity.
From what I read the buyer bought it before production began and was allowed to pick color and options.
